This is an extremely Sturdy boot and would suit well for snow or rough terrain. I usually wear a size 10 in walking shoes and Salomon boots is a 10 as well. The size 10 in these was much too snug to wear with wool hiking/backpacking socks. I would suggest getting a half size up on these. As far as construction of the boot goes, these are indestructible. Would definitely recommend if you have the proper time to break these in before a long hike. I am going on a 50+ mile backpacking trip in a month, so not enough time to return and get a 10.5 and break them in before I go, so if you buy these, understand that multiple small hikes will be needed before they are broken in and they fit small.
